Welcom Net to Bring Advanced Gigabit Services to Finland

ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, has announced its deployment plans with Welcom Net, a Finnish alternative network operator focused on utilizing ADTRAN´s gigabit-ready, fiber extension portfolio to rapidly extend gigabit services to business properties in Helsinki, regardless of the building age, the company said.

Welcom Net will leverage ADTRAN´s Mosaic access domain SDN controller and orchestrator to manage the gigabit services upgrade of existing customers and accelerate the on-boarding of hundreds of enterprise Multi-Tenant Units (MTU) over the next three years.

Welcom Net selected ADTRAN´s local reseller partner BCC Solutions to manage the planning, installation and management of this exciting network upgrade. BCC Solutions worked with Welcom Net to select a broadband technology upgrade path that overcame the logistical challenges and business disruption concerns of the Helsinki MTU broadband market.

This simplification was achieved by leveraging ADTRAN´s industry-leading Gfast fiber extension portfolio, affording Welcom Net a rapidly deployable, gigabit-ready broadband service that also transparently supports the original DSL broadband services within the same building, further eliminating upgrade interruptions.

For Welcom Net, deploying the ADTRAN Gfast solution was simple and straightforward. It offers high-value, high-bandwidth services–previously only available over fiber–to buildings where deploying fiber cables isn´t feasible due to historic property requirements. Management of the new network service is provided by the ADTRAN MosaicTM Cloud Platform, which unlocks control and management functions from the underlying network elements, enabling more flexible, agile service delivery across the entire access network domain.

ADTRAN solutions optimize existing technology infrastructures and create new, multi-gigabit platforms that leverage cloud economics, data analytics, machine learning and open ecosystems.
